South-East Asia's largest esports organisation Mineski and service provider Globe Telecom have announced the creation of all-women League of Legends and Arena of Valor teams. It expands upon their previous deal to create the esports organisation Team Liyab.
The new teams will also be under the Team Liyab banner but will be called "Liyab Haliya," featuring a mix of veteran players and newcomers. According to a release, Haliya is named after "the masked moon goddess who battles monsters such as Bakunawa in the Bicolano folklore.”
The original partnership in February saw the creation of Arena of Valor, League of Legends and Hearthstone teams under the Team Liyab name.
Globe Telecom senior vice president, Nikko Acosta said in a release: “Globe continues its commitment to growing a more inclusive Philippines esports industry with Haliya. Through the introduction of 5G technology and our first all-female professional esports team, we aim for the online gaming experience to reach new heights and set the local industry’s place as a major player in the global arena.”
The Philippines-based telecommunications company is also the title sponsor of Globe Conquerors Manila, a $250,000 League of Legends tournament. It serves as the official SEA qualifier for the World Championship Play-In. Globe Telecom also partnered with Riot Games, Garena, and Mineski to launch the Philippine Pro Gaming League.
